18 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

18 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

Once again we returned to the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles to shoot against one of the many painted walls you can find in that neighborhood. The weather was gorgeous, and so sunny that I couldn’t even remove my sunglasses to take a decent picture. My bump is still pretty small here, and probably looks more like a beer belly to those who don’t know me, but I’m super excited to see it growing.

Come back next week for an update in our ongoing series: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places.

Nail Art: More Than A Manacure

As a surface design studio, we love to see prints pop up in new and unexpected places. Nail art is a trend I’ve been seeing a lot more of lately; it’s unique and quirky, and perhaps best of all, a temporary commitment. You can get creative and attempt to paint a delicate design yourself with the help of one of these cool tutorials by Refinery 29. Or go low-maintenance and buy a design to apply at home, my favorite being these water marbling stickers in the special edition Cynthia Rowley Birchbox set. Whichever the case, endless options abound. I’m especially enamored with the celestial set down at the bottom.. simply out of this world.

Spring ’12 Trends : Futuristic Florals

digi-floral-prabal-gurung-2

We all expect to see floral prints in a spring show, but several designers have seemingly reinvented the floral using digital media and printing techniques. You might call it fashion forward, I like to think of it as florals from the future. I’m not sure who’s ready to rock this trend just yet, but I love it and imagine we’ll be seeing more of it as accessibility to technology continues to grow.

Background Check

background-check-cavalli

If you pay attention to fashion then you’re well aware that many designers have gone bonkers for prints. They are mixing them in unconventional ways, and saturating the body from head-to-toe in bold, colorful motifs. Just when we thought there was no possible way to up the ante a few designers had to go and prove us wrong. Below you’ll find a few examples of print-laden collections set against some very dynamic backgrounds. And apparently we aren’t the only one to notice this trend – the last set of images were composed by one of our favorite bloggers, the lovely Miss Moss, posted on her blog only yesterday. If printophelia isn’t a real word yet we think it ought to be; we are certified printophiles. Just don’t tell our health insurance, ok?
